Love the TV Times and remember this edition so well as I dreamed of winning the AT-AT in the competition. We used to get the Radio Times and the TV Times every week. Nice score.

Wow that's a beauty of an AT-ST Driver, I really want one of those. Possibly the best looking POTF cardback.

AT-ST Drivers are usually good. I can never remember if its the Taiwan or HK that have the round cut around coin - they're always the clearer ones. Those with the extended squarer cut are the ones that go piss yellow.

Don't see many round cut though - think I had 3 in the run I had.

Dav, that TV Times is awesome. That makes me more nostalgic than anything I've seen for quite sometime. Love the "Channel 4 is coming too"! I take it that was advertising a screening of ANH rather than ESB despite them using ESB art on the cover.


Thanks , I love it too takes me back to the early 80's ! An item I will keep for a long long time. Yes this was Definitely ANH being shown on TV (ITV) for the 1st time. Empire Art as this TV Times was in 1982 and a Jedi coming out a year later.

Your circling of listings inspired me to see what the opposition were showing on 24th October 1982 at 7.15pm

BBC1 showed a film called 'The Night the Bridge Fell Down'.

SublevelStudios - loving the collection of Palitoy items,
where did you manage to source them?

Dublinjeff - great looking poster.

I must say this is a great thread to follow with some
lovely items being added to collections. Keep them coming! :wink:

Thanks Edd, took me ages to find one. Such an improvement on the standard Jedi card.

At last a new addition to my Palitoy MOC 45a tally. It's not perfect (a couple of ink touch ups) but very nice all the same and very tough to get.
